Arsenal Reveal Details Of Gabriel Martinelli Injury 



Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has disclosed that Gabriel Martinelli injured his hamstring before limping off against Everton.

The Brazilian forward was removed off the pitch at Goodison Park after only 24 minutes of play. He unexpectedly took a knock while sprinting through on goal to score an attempt that was disallowed due to an offside VAR review.

Martinelli was replaced by Leandro Trossard on Merseyside, with the Belgian going on to score the only goal of the game. Arteta told Sky Sports afterwards when asked for an update on Martinelli: “He felt something in his hamstring so he will need to be assessed.”

While Arsenal wait on an update there, they were able to take positives from a narrow win over Everton. They caused plenty of problems with short corner routines – with Trossard’s goal coming from one of those – and Arteta said of mixing things up: “Obviously they are very strong in the box so we need alternatives. It’s about creating a story in the game and the players have to sense when is the best moment to do it.”

“We have to keep finding different weapons to win games. We win a lot of corners and we have to maximise that, for sure,” he told BBC Sport.


The 2023–24 Premier League season is off to an undefeated start for Arsenal, who have won all five of their games. The runners-up from the previous season have 13 points out of a possible 15, placing them fourth in the standings.
